New version of Ice for testing.
« on: April 07, 2014, 04:41:34 pm »
Hello all,

Ice as it has been for the past few years was written in Python 2 with GTK+2 as the gui framework. Anyway, today I went ahead and ported it to Python 3 and GTK+3. It tests well as far as I can see, but there are probably a few things I'm missing here and there so I'm posting the package here for any brave souls who dare install it. There are no new or different features at this point, rather it's just a straight port to the new Python and GTK+ versions. In fact probably 85% of the code is just copied and pasted from the old version.

Anyway, here it is. Standard disclaimers apply:

i'll gladly explore it and report to you back. :)
for a starter: after installation, it reports in the `status` field: Same version is already installed.
Is this normal? (it is bit confusing anyway)

Unless Kendall disagrees, it may be best to ignore this topic for now .. there will probably  be a completely new version of "ice" for the release of Peppermint 5 :)

Yes, PM5 is in private beta right now ... but you're too late to apply to be in the beta group .. that'll teach you not to keep an eye on the announcements eh ? ;)
